Vanity (Al-Zukhruf)
89 verses, revealed in Mecca after Consultation (Al-Shooraa) before Smoke (Al-Dukhaan)
In the name of God, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
Ha-Mim. (1) By the Book that makes things clear, (2) We have made it an Arabic reading text so that perhaps you may understand. (3) Truly, it is inscribed in the Original Book, in Our keeping; it is sublime and full of wisdom. (4) Shall We utterly ignore you because ye are a wanton folk? (5) And how many a prophet We sent among the former peoples, (6) And never came there unto them a prophet but they used to mock him. (7) Then We destroyed those who were stronger than these in prowess, and the case of the ancients has gone before, (8) And if you should ask them, Who created the heavens and the earth? they would most certainly say: The Mighty, the Knowing One, has created them; (9) [The one] who has made for you the earth a bed and made for you upon it roads that you might be guided (10) Who sent down water in due measure from the sky, then quickened a region that was dead -- So shall We bring you forth -- (11) That has created pairs in all things, and has made for you ships and cattle on which ye ride, (12) In order that you may mount firmly on their backs, and then may remember the Favour of your Lord when you mount thereon, and say: "Glory to Him who has subjected this to us, and we could never have it (by our efforts)." (13) Hence, verily, it is unto Him that we must always turn." (14) Yet they make some of His servants partners in His divinity. Man is clearly ungrateful! (15)
